Damon goes back to his first point and highlights that this is a way to get the learners to participate. They are the ones doing the talking and listening.

Next he asks the tutors to come up with a reason why people become homeless. Again the discussion is vigorous. Social dysfunction is a common them.

The groups report back.

“Society makes demands that some people cannot meet. People feel rejected.” “There are usually unfortunate events in people’s lives that lead to this.” Noke, a driver licensing tutor, offers an insightful comment. “He’s homeless because he has no home.” There is a bit of laughter at first then the tutors realise the comment is deeper than a throw-away line. Others agree that for the man in the photograph a home may not be a physical structure and that the person may choose to live as he does. Damon challenges the groups to restate the reason given by another group using different words.

Homeless people are deprived of many rights from the society, but the responsible people in the society should provide helps for them.The government should take some effective steps for the benefits of the homeless people.This http://www.ninjaessays.org/ is created on the history of the reasons of being homeless people in many of the country.
